On 16 September 2014, the Indonesian House of Representatives passed the Bill on Copyright to replace the current Law no. 19 of 2002 on Copyright. The new law introduces a number of changes to copyright, such as :

  1. New protected works such as data compilations, video games and traditional cultural expressions; 
  2. Moral rights and economic rights are separate forms of copyright;
  3. The duration of copyright protection is extended from 50 years after the creator’s death to 70 years;
  4. Copyright infringement is specified to include landlord liability and non commercial circulation of online content is now an exception to infringement 
  5. Management of collective rights is covered;
  6. Criminal copyright infringement now requires a formal complaint from the rights holder (previously the police could act ex officio).
